    I've been telling people Base-4 would replace binary for years but, as we all know, there are 10 kinds of people in the world...

    Re: Researchers can now encode 215 petabytes in a single gram of DNA

    every bit of information we know comes from dna .. we just don't know it yet ..what has been and is to learn is in there
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true
    (Cassandra, in Agamemnon by Aeschylus)

    To see the wizard one must look behind the curtain ....
